The Militia is an infantry unit in Age of Mythology that is exclusive to Poseidon. Militia cannot be trained; they can only be generated when a Poseidon worshiper's building is destroyed. Different buildings generate different numbers of Militia, as follows:

Other buildings do not generate Militia. Town Centers do not do so as Militia appear under the destroyed building and Town Centers are built on top of settlements.

A player may have a maximum of 25 Militia. They also feature in some scenarios of the Fall of the Trident campaign.

Strategy Edit

The Militia is a light infantry unit that is one of the game's weakest. However, they are well armored, take up only 1 population slot each and benefit from most military upgrades. They can add much-needed defense to a town under attack. In groups, Militia can defeat some units, particularly cavalry, but they should not be counted on to turn the tide of a battle.

Militia can be seen as weaker versions of the Egyptian Mercenary unit, though Militia do not have a time limit before they die.

History Edit

The Greek polis of Sparta had a very regimented structure. The full citizens of Sparta were required to be full-time soldiers, and their constant training made them warriors virtually without peer. Below the citizens were the Perioikoi, or militia. The Perioikoi trained only a few weeks a year and were deployed only within the local area as a defensive force. These part-time warriors made up about half of the Spartan army, but they did not have the rights of citizens.
